Ricky GervaisChannel 4 will air a cartoon version of Ricky Gervais’s podcasts in 2010.

The 13-part animated series, which will first be broadcast on US TV network HBO in February, will air in the UK in March.

Gervais’s radio show is in the Guinness Book of Records as the most downloaded podcast of 2007. The series includes discussion between Gervais, his comedy writing partner Stephen Merchant and producer Karl Pilkington.

The Extras star also claimed that Channel 4 made him an offer that he “couldn’t refuse” for the rights to the show.

“Who’d have thought three blokes chatting in a room would turn out to be so lucrative?” he joked.

He’s having the last laugh now…
